Before changing starter have you checked connections to starter for corroded wires , loose connections, loose starter in housing, dirty / bad connection earth strap frm gearbox to body?...if all ok sound and clean then check starter..

Fingy, I'd say its the bushing in the gearbox. The starters arent self supported, and if there is play between the end of the starter and the bronze bushing then when power is put to the starter, it doesnt fly straight and wont spin/will stick/crank slowly. The exact same thing happened to me last week. Get your self a new bushing. I found its wayyyy easier to drop the motor to change it, had the whole thing out/swapped and back in within two hours.

P.S. Just remember to pull off/re-attach your fuel lines...otherwise the car will crank but not start, your entire tank will drain onto the floor and the battery will die, then you have to wait to recharge it to use your car...go on, ask me how i know...i dare ya... :oops:

how old is your battery?
i bought a camper and the bloke said ' if you stop after running for a time (hot engine) then leave till the engine is cool before restarting'

so after takin 5 hours to do a 2hour journey home cos i didnt want to over work the tired engine, i replaced the battery cos i had a nearly new one given to me, lo and behold no more tired engine! started first time every time :D

just a thought !
